The complicated relationship with the UK affects Ireland's dealings with Europe, the Irish role in the UN gets busy, rising racial tensions in the US grab the attention of diplomats and cross border trade is a big concern: It's all very 2020, but it's 1962-5. In this bonus episode Dr Michael Kennedy and Dr John Gibney from the Royal Irish Academy's Documents on Irish Foreign Policy (DIFP) project join Deputy Foreign Editor Colm Ó Mongáin for a look at some themes that never go away.
Why not listen to a soundtrack of the time with John Gibney's DIFP sixties Spotify playlist ?
